Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
I'm having an electrical problem with the subject harley. Last year on a ride the bike ran fine until suddenly it stopped as if I turned off the key.No electrical working. After sitting for 2 or 3 minutes I turned on the switch and it started right up. Rode a few more miles and a repeat of this event. At home I checked the battery conections which seemed okay, but I loosened them and tightend them again to be sure. I only rode the bike once or twice with no problems until this year. First trip this year, no problems. Today 10 miles to my brother's house no problem. On the return trip, it shut down again. Then after trying the switch several times, everything lit up and it started up again. 5 miles later a repeat of this scenario. After sitting for a few minutes or so the electric comes back on line and the bike starts. With an intermittent problem like this I don't want to take it to the dealer because it can run fine for miles, and the problem rectifies itself quickly. I'd rather try to trouble shoot it myself if you have some ideas to try when it occurs or things to check before I head out on a ride.
Thanks much for your help!
I had the same problem with my 2003 ultra, after reading this technical support, I did some checking, and my local Harley dealer said that the old main circuit breaker needs to be changed from a 40amp breaker to a 50amp breaker. I was told that there was a factory recall, and at fisrt the breaker was changed with another 40amp breaker. it was then found out that it needed to be a 50amp breaker. I bought and installed my own breaker for around $8, but I was told they would change it for me for free, if I brought the bike in! Due to time restrictions, I chose to do it myself. So far so good. Hope it works for everyone!!!

I HAVE A 2003 ROAD KING CLASSIC. THE SPEED-O WILL PEG OUT TO 120 MPH AFTER A FEW MILES. SOMETIMES IT WILL RESET IT'S SELF ON THE ROAD. WHEN THIS HAPPENS THE ODOMITER STOPS WORKING ALONG WITH THE AUTO CNX TURN SIGNALS, AND IT WILL DIE AT AN IDOL. IF I TURN THE BIKE OFF , WAIT FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES THEN TURN IT ON IT RESETS. PLEASE HELP RON IN OKC
